John Howie Steak – Bellevue

Downtown Bellevue is so beautiful.  Their buildings look like heritage buildings, but also has a very modern edge to them to keep things interesting.  They also have lots of awesome restaurants!!  One such restaurant is John Howie Steak, a pretty swanky steakhouse that makes Hy’s Encore here in Vancouver look like the Keg (just a […]

Habanero’s Mexican Grill

On my last night in San Diego, I had dinner with the classmates I was training with.  Since San Diego is known for their Mexican food and fish tacos, we decided to go to Habanero’s Mexican Grill which was right beside our hotel. At first we thought Habanero’s was a sit-down restaurant, but it turns […]

Karl Strauss Brewery – Sorrento Valley, San Diego

After a week of Latin festivities…back to our regular programming!  Specifically…my coverage of San Diego! San Diego is full of local craft breweries, and on the third night, I was taken to one of these – the Karl Strauss Brewery in Sorrento Valley. Karl Strauss Brewery actually has a few different locations.  This particular one […]

Seasons 52 – La Jolla, San Diego

I officially LOVE San Diego!  It’s so sunny and summery and the outdoor eating area of the complex I was training in had their OWN FREAKING WATERFALL!!!!!  It was so nice to sit under an umbrella with a lovely coastal breeze keeping you just cool enough while you eat your lunch in front of a […]

Spices Thai Cafe – Mira Mesa, San Diego

Well well well, I’m back in San Diego again, this time for work.  I was quite excited not only because this is my first business trip, but also ’cause it’s an opportunity for out-of-town posts!!  Prior to the trip I googled and urbanspoon’d for where to eat.  I finally decided on Spices Thai Cafe in Mira […]

Paseo Caribbean Restaurant

There are a lot of little eateries in the States that get famous by word-of-mouth.  Paseo Caribbean Restaurant is definitely one of them.  Mom and I were told by Cousin D to visit this place, and to visit it early.  So the next morning, Aunt Aggy, Uncle Walken, Mom and I woke up (relatively) early […]

Little Garden Chinese Cuisine 十里香 -Bellevue, WA

Many times when I visit Aunt Aggy and Uncle Walken in the States, they take me to new restaurants they’ve discovered.  This time, they took mom and I to Little Garden, a mixed Chinese restaurant in Bellevue.  I say “mixed” because they offer Shanghai style, Hunan style, Szechuan style; all different styles of Chinese food. […]

Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery Tour

On a trip to the States with Pretty Sis, Aunt Aggy and Uncle Walken took us for a mini morning winery + wine tasting tour.  Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery is situated at a sort of industrial area where there are a bunch of other wineries.  This particular one was chosen for the abundance of awards […]

Falls Buffet @ Snoqualmie Casino

If you like crabs and prime rib, this is the buffet for you folks.  Pretty Sis and I went down for a visit to our lovely aunt and uncle down in the States.  Now when my parents went down a couple times ago aunt and uncle had taken them to the Snoqualmie Casino for their […]

Romano’s Macaroni Grill @ Alderwood Mall

On a recent trip to Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, we decided to have “lunch” (it was 3pm) at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.  Some of you may be familiar with this name as it is a franchised restaurant, and locally they have a location in Vancouver also. It was a particularly warm day so we decided to […]
